Day 62 Trois Rivière > Portneuf

Early start good breakfast and off to a good start. 11 km latter I left town another detour another bridge closed. Quebec is going through major changes - money no object road improvements! One would think they are syphoning off EEC funds! where does that money go France?! No point in stopping to buy groceries they just don't like us! Sadly they live in a most idyllic place. I am now following the St Lawrence yes actually technically the Sea. Alas it would be like arriving in Fosdyke and saying your on the East coast! The Canadians are only happy if you bust another 1000 Km to Halifax then you can call yourself man! Today I reached the 5000 km mark and have decided to celebrate the occasion by giving my trusty steed a name. From now on he will only be referred to as Stuart. Stuart Pearce - my hero - best thighs in Britain - closely followed by Mason although pretty sure I can now give them both a run for their money! Anyway I shall ride Stuart with pride! Finished the day just 50 Km from Quebec City. After another 100 km day! Tired and hot but happy! Weather hot hot hot mid 30's again Wind NE Road kill 1x blackbird

Congratulations Jo, biking and blogging. Your blog gets printed off for the entire family on a weekly basis. Aunty Eva loves it; she is now off her bicycle and back on repaired electric scooter, otherwise she would fly over and bike with you. The teenage and twenties generation regard you as an Olympian, like James Cracknell with better management and luck. They hold your athletic prowess in awe, admiration and esteem. Well done.
As for Lincs show, lovely on Wednesday, but extreme wash out and mud bath on Thursday. All the best for the rest of your journey. love from all Nullis family in Dry Doddington xxx

Bonjour Jo and Stuart
Hope you’re both doing fine and making the most of the hot weather you’re having. Nights here are closing in with winter just around the corner, must gather wood and ensure there are plenty of provisions in stock.... just found out what “fine” means ... F-cked up, insecure, neurotic and exhausted or is that just me??

Enjoy the last few miles you have left... not far to go now
Health check ......Jo remember to take in plenty of fluids!
Bike check ... keep Stuart well inflated
Au revoir

More than days on bike not sure that this actually means anything. Amazing weather your having think you must be getting our share of sunshine, you need it more than we do. Take care keep Stuart well oiled. Lots love.

Hi Jo haven't made comment for a while but still following the blog with great interest. Cannot believe how far you have got putting us boys back here to shame. Remember you don't have to enjoy the French attitude just their nice food. Glad you have got on well with Stuart , be gentle with him and hopefully he will last the distance.
Good luck and look forward to seeing you back in Blighty.

Charlotte seems like the booze has given you double vision
